Observer
NameJoseph S
Experience Level3/5
Remarks3 seconds after this event i saw another meteorite coming down at a steeper angle in approximately the same location that left an orange broken trail behind it followed immediately by another small meteorite higher in the sky. Then 2 seconds later there was another large white flash that was nearly as bright as the first one I saw. I was driving so I didn't get see the trail just the explosion. This was the craziest thing I've seen in the night sky. I've witnessed 3 other meteorite explosions in the last 30 yrs. 2 of the three with other witnesses. 3 of the 4 i've witnesses have been while driving at night.
